Entering Week 13, 24 teams remain in or within one game of a playoff bid.
Heading into Week 12, 23 teams are either in or within one game of a playoff bid. A marquee matchup between two old foes is rekindled on Sunday night.
Ten weeks in the books and 23 teams remain in or within one-and-a-half games of a playoff bid. Week 11 is highlighted by two marquee, prime time matchups.
Nine weeks into the season, there have been several notable turnarounds.
Only one game on the Week 9 docket features two teams with winning records, the Monday night matchup between the Bears and Packers.
Fans in New York never want to abandon thoughts of the postseason this early into any season. As frustrated as they may be, the hope of a postseason run remains in the minds of the fans of both New York NFL teams.
And then there was one. With the Broncos falling to the Colts, only the Chiefs remain unbeaten.
Here’s my take on how Week 7 plays out.
There’s no getting around the fact that the Bears’ defensive line has underwhelmed this season.
Time offers the opportunity for perspective, so I thought it would be a good idea to wait each week to give my thoughts on the Bears game.
After getting a chance to review the film, Bears head coach Marc Trestman met the media Friday afternoon to discuss Thursday night’s 27-21 win over the New York Giants.
Here’s Durkin’s take on how Week 6 will play out.
The Bears may have lost another key defensive player for the season.
It wasn’t pretty, but the Bears improved to 4-2 with their win over the Giants on Thursday night.
Zero sacks. Zero turnovers. The Bears hadn’t done that since Dec. 23, 2007 against the Green Bay Packers.
Nobody said it had to be pretty.
The signs were there in Bourbonnais.
Jay Cutler threw two touchdown passes to Brandon Marshall, and Tim Jennings had two of the Chicago Bears’ three interceptions against Eli Manning in a 27-21 victory over the winless New York Giants on Thursday night.
Despite their 0-5 record, the New York Giants still have the pieces to form a potent passing attack.
The Bears are at a critical point in the schedule and while they have suffered a couple of missed steps against the Lions and the Saints, they are still in a strong position to get their season back on track.
